As you were for Pools

Hartlepool manager Neale Cooper will pick his starting line-up for the home game with Notts County from an unchanged squad for the fourth game running.

Cooper has no new injury or suspension worries and is expected start with the same line-up that kicked-off at Preston in midweek.

Defender Steve Haslam and forward Colin Nish stepped off the substitutes' bench on Tuesday night and are both pushing for a place in the starting line-up.

James Poole is still sidelined with a troublesome hamstring despite the aid of an injection last week and fellow striker Colin Larkin (knee) remains a long-term absentee.

The 1-0 midweek defeat at Preston was Pools' first in six league matches and Cooper's side currently lie 10 points adrift of the play-offs with 16 games to play.
